Ford Escape Towing Capacity

Ford Escape Towing Capacity Overview

The Ford Escape has a towing capacity from 1000 lbs and 3500 lbs depending on the trim and model year.

All towing capacities are braked capacities. This means that the trailer being towed has a braking system installed to assist the vehicle braking system. The towing capacities for trailers without brakes will be much less. Confirm all towing capacities with the owner's manual.
